Houseboats in Africa!

Last year I had a wonderful boat-safari on Lake Kariba with some friends. Now one of my other friends wanna go! But she doesn´t like the idea of going to Zimbabwe for all the know reasons.. So is there any other place than Lake Kariba that she can hire a houseboat and see animals on the shore? I have seen some adds on Chobe, but i would really like to hear from anyone who have done it?

We just spent two nights on the (houseboat) Ichobezi Mukwae at the end of August and it was fabulous. Lots of game - elephants, sable, bushbuck, giraffes, warthogs, baboons, hippos, kudu, impala, red lechwe, buffalo, and even a leopard - and many, many birds. The group before us had seen lions and wild dogs. On one game drive at sunrise (in a tenderboat), we saw 39 species of birds and 11 species of mammals! Only four cabins, maximum 8 people. Great food! Wonderful staff! We only stayed 2 nights but I would recommend 4 nights if you can afford it. It was recommended in the Bradt Guide - that's how we discovered the Ichobezi. You won't be disappointed!

Or the Nguni Voyager which is very well priced. http://www.ngunivoyager.com/

Eventhough it goes up the Chobe River, you don't see masses of game, but animals do come down to the river.
